Broken tooth





If you break a bone, you
probably know you should seek medical attention right away. You'll undoubtedly
be in pain and unable to use the part of the body you broke. But what happens
when you break a tooth? After all, sometimes only part of a tooth breaks off
and you might not feel any pain. It might even seem like your tooth still works
just fine.
A broken tooth is usually
caused by trauma -- from biting down on something hard like a bagel chip to
receiving a blow to the face. Tooth decay can also weaken a tooth,
eventually causing it to break. Sometimes a broken tooth will cause a toothache or jaw pain; other times you
might feel only mild tooth sensitivity.
If you have a broken tooth,
consider it a dental emergency
and call an emergency dentist
right away! While broken teeth can range in size and severity from a chipped tooth to a completely knocked out tooth, any dental trauma
warrants immediate attention. Even though you might not feel any pain, there
may be damage to the tooth or its roots that you don't know about. And this
damage may eventually lead to pain or tooth loss.
Before you get to the
dentist, follow some self-care tips:
Save any broken teeth
pieces.
If it was a clean break, your dentist may be able to
cement the broken tooth back together as a temporary fix. If possible, put the
broken tooth fragments or completely knocked out tooth in a container with a
small amount of milk or saline.
Rinse broken teeth fragments
with warm water.
If a tooth is completely knocked out, hold it
by the crown (top) and rinse it off with water. Do not touch the roots of the
tooth or try to scrape the roots to remove dirt.
Practice some first-aid
basics.
If an area is bleeding, rinse out your mouth with water.
Place a piece of gauze or tissue in the socket and bite down. A cold compress
can help with swelling and pain.
Call the dentist. If
you have a completely knocked out tooth, there is a 30-minute window in which
it can effectively be reattached. After 24 hours, chances decrease
significantly.




Dental treatment for a broken tooth depends
on the severity of the break. A tooth filling is used to fix breaks to the
outer part of the tooth (the  enamel). A
dental filling may also be used for a more serious break involving the enamel
and inner layer of the tooth (dentin), but often
a dental crown is necessary in these cases.
The most serious breaks are those that damage a tooth's nerve. These usually
require a root canal to remove
the damaged nerve and blood vessels.


If you've got a broken tooth
or knocked out tooth, call your dentist right away! A dentist can determine the
level of damage done and attempt to restore the broken tooth.

Dental implants




A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal
disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Types of Dental Implants:
·     Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients
with bridges or removable dentures.
·        Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework's posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.If you are looking for an English speaking dentist in Miraflores,we are located in 319 Schell avenue, suite 606 Miraflores.
